Perinatal Wellbeing Centre

Can you imagine being pregnant or a new parent with bushfires, smoke then a global pandemic? It's been scary and isolating even for the most resilient among us.
An Accredited Mental Health Service, Perinatal Wellbeing Centre (formerly PANDSI) provides perinatal mental health support to clients from pregnancy until their youngest child reaches two years of age.


We care for over 800 local families each year and have experienced significant surges in demand - in one month alone telephone counselling sessions increased by 57%. Recent studies show that 1 in 5 women and 1 in 10 men experience perinatal anxiety and/or depression symptoms which amounts to over 1,100 Canberra families impacted during every year.


In addition to a comprehensive telephone/email counselling service, Perinatal Wellbeing Centre offers a range of programs and workshops designed to provide mental, emotional and physical benefits to those experiencing perinatal depression, anxiety, stress and/or are finding it challenging adjusting to parenting.

On March 9, join us in raising our hands for Canberra!

Be part of the 2nd annual Hands Up for Canberra Giving Day and help us turn this into an annual giving tradition for every Canberran!

March 9th, the day after Canberra Day, will be a historic day for everyone in our community to GIVE BIG - join in on the fun(draising) and support us through the Hands up for Canberra Giving Day! Plus, every $1 you donate will become $2 with our generous matched funding matching dollar-for-dollar until we reach $10,000.

We'll have just 48 hours to raise $10,000! Come on Canberra, together we can do this!

Thank you for all you do! Having a baby last was the most exciting time of my life,, during the most stressful year ever. I don't know how hubby and I would have made it through without the support, generosity and wisdom we received from those phone calls. I think back on the conversations we shared, and I know now the help I received makes me a more resilient mummy.
